The Muthaship: Satanic_Hamster: The Muthaship: SPLC requirements for being labeled a hate group:

1. Fail to fully support the agenda of the SPLC with every word and deed.

Citation please.

There are tons of articles that cover it.  But, this is my opinion.  You are not obligated to either read the articles nor agree with me.  The FRC made the list for being advocates of traditional marriage.  That led to a shooting.  But, the list is a cash cow for the SPLC, so it grows.


In 2003, former Marine and Louisiana state representative Anthony Richard "Tony" Perkins became president of the FRC after a failed 2002 run for one of Louisiana's U.S. Senate seats. Under his leadership, the group continues to peddle its false claims about homosexuality and has made combating the "homosexual agenda" a seemingly obsessive interest.

In 1996, while managing the U.S. Senate campaign of Woody Jenkins against Mary Landrieu, Perkins paid $82,500 to use the mailing list of former Klan chieftain Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), a white supremacist group that has described black people as a "retrograde species of humanity." Perkins claimed not to know the group's ideology at the time, but it had been widely publicized in Louisiana and the nation, because in 1999 - two years before Perkins' speech to the CCC - Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott had been embroiled in a national scandal over his ties to the group. GOP chairman Jim Nicholson then urged Republicans to avoid the CCC because of its "racist views."

Let's look at some of the fun:

"The videos are titled 'It Gets Better.' They are aimed at persuading kids that although they'll face struggles and perhaps bullying for 'coming out' as homosexual (or transgendered or some other perversion), life will get better. ...It's disgusting. And it's part of a concerted effort to persuade kids that homosexuality is okay and actually to recruit them into that lifestyle."
- Tony Perkins, FRC fundraising letter, August 2011

"Those who understand the homosexual community-the activists-they're very aggressive, they're-everything they accuse us of they are in triplicate. They're intolerant, they're hateful, vile, they're spiteful. .... To me, that is the height of hatred, to be silent when we know there are individuals that are engaged in activity, behavior, and an agenda that will destroy them and our nation."
-Tony Perkins, Speaking to the Oak Initiative Summit, April 2011

"We believe the evidence shows ... that relative to the size of their population, homosexual men are more likely to engage in child sexual abuse than are heterosexual men."
- Peter Sprigg, "Debating Homosexuality: Understanding Two Views." 2011.

"While activists like to claim that pedophilia is a completely distinct orientation from homosexuality, evidence shows a disproportionate overlap between the two. ... It is a homosexual problem."
- FRC President Tony Perkins, FRC website, 2010

"[W]elcoming open homosexuality in the military would clearly damage the readiness and effectiveness of the force - in part because it would increase the already serious problem of homosexual assault in the military."
- Peter Sprigg, "Homosexual Assault in the Military," 2010

"A little-reported fact is that homosexual and lesbian relationships are far more violent than are traditional married households."
-- Timothy Dailey, FRC publication, "Homosexual Parenting: Placing Children at Risk," 2002

"Gaining access to children has been a long-term goal of the homosexual movement."
- Robert Knight, FRC director of cultural studies, and Frank York, 1999

"[Homosexuality] ... embodies a deep-seated hatred against true religion."
- Steven Schwalm, FRC senior writer and analyst, in "Desecrating Corpus Christi," 1999

"One of the primary goals of the homosexual rights movement is to abolish all age of consent laws and to eventually recognize pedophiles as the 'prophets' of a new sexual order."
-1999 FRC publication, "Homosexual Behavior and Pedophilia," Robert Knight and Frank York


It has nothing to do with marriage.

Really?  I was under the impression it was because they advocated violence, incarceration, and hatred of homosexuals and due to their constant demonizing of gays, including claiming that all gays plan to rape children.

Dancin_In_Anson: what_now: It bothered him so much he blew up 168 American citizens?

The sickening irony does not escape me either.


His methods could be criticized, but I am sure his intentions were sincerely patriotic.  He was simply doing whatever was in his power to preserve America (Land of the Free and Home of the Brave), by performing an act of resistance against the jackbooted thuggery of the vast left wing liberal conspiracy to subvert the government of the American people, by the American people, and for the American people, and to hand over the reins of power to the UN.

I'm not saying those people individually deserved what they got.  But by working for the federal government, they were willing collaborators with the vast left wing conspiracy; little Eichmanns.  And in war, collateral damage sometimes happens.  McVeigh was trying to blow up a Federal building, it wasn't his fault there were people inside.  Isn't that the rationale you libs use when you defend 0bama's cowardly drone strikes?

I'm not necessarily defending McVeigh, not in public.  I'm just asking questions.  But you can see why, in the face of liberal tyranny, why doing that might have made sense.  Assuming it was his idea, and that it wasn't a false flag operation conducted by the CIA, MK-ULTRA, ACORN, and George Soros to justify rounding up real American patriots, of course.

I don't think that the SPLC ever stated that an organization needed to advocate violence to be on the list. You might think the list is too expansive, but I think it would be inaccurate to say they are "fast and loose" as to who goes on the list.

But considering how the internet has become a giant witchhunt for "racists", I think the goalposts were just moved in a little to make it a little easier. "Racist" now includes not only all republicans, but even nominal independents like myself who value sh*t President Obama doesn't. Like fiscal responsibility, keeping campaign promises, and muh freedoms. Because if you aren't an apologist for Obama's incompetence, you're part of a f*cking hate group.


It's not that people who disagree with Obama are racist. It's simple: prominent members of the Republican Party have said the Voting Rights Act should be repealed. The official Republican Party platform is misogynistic and homophobic. Every male Republican in the Senate voted against an amendment that allowed defense contractors to be sued for allowing rape.

If you vote for the Republican Party you either support these points, or don't find them so objectionable as to remove your support. Therefore, you're either actively racist/homophobic/misogynistic or don't think racism/homophobia/misogyny is so bad as to justify voting for another party.

This is especially inane when the other party has a demonstrably better record on protecting "yuh freedoms" and fiscal responsibility.

Listen, I know as a crazy person it's hard to dissect how your people think, but he was intent on mass murder. He would have found another "reason." Waco really had nothing to do with it.

You might be right. The thing is, summarily dismissing the SPLC is like summarily dismissing the ACLU - for the most part, they're right, you just hate the messenger.

The SPLC may in fact mislabel some groups as hate groups when they are not. But my experience with the SPLC says this rarely, if ever, happens.

The Muthaship: what_now: The Westboro Baptist Church doesn't advocate violence either.

They are more of a hate the sinner and the sin group, it seems to me.  The FRC, deluded as they are, seems like they are just against the sin.


No, they hate the shiat out of the sinner, too, and work hard to deny them/us civil rights. There is not one group on the SPLC's list that didn't earn it.

The Non-hateful NRC's stance on Homosexuality from Wiki:


Statements on homosexualityAccording to the Family Research Council, "homosexual conduct is harmful to the persons who engage in it and to society at large, and can never be affirmed" and it is "by definition unnatural, and as such is associated with negative physical and psychological health effects."[19] The Council also asserts that "there is no convincing evidence that a homosexual identity is ever something genetic or inborn".[19] An , the case that overturned sodomy laws on privacy grounds.[20] The summary of the amicus curiae brief declares that "States may discourage the 'evils' ... of sexual acts outside of marriage by means up to and including criminal prohibition" and that it is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family_Research_Council#cite_note-21">[21 ] acts".[22] Similar positions have been advocated by representatives of the organisation since the Supreme Court case was decided in 2003.

angrymonday: A lot of Socialists and black separatist on that list. This list would double if they would count the unions.


Yes, because I see a lot of Unions hating on particular groups of people because of their race, gender, religion or sexual orientation.

The Muthaship: Satanic_Hamster: The Muthaship: SPLC requirements for being labeled a hate group:

1. Fail to fully support the agenda of the SPLC with every word and deed.

Citation please.

There are tons of articles that cover it.  But, this is my opinion.  You are not obligated to either read the articles nor agree with me.  The FRC made the list for being advocates of traditional marriage.  That led to a shooting.  But, the list is a cash cow for the SPLC, so it grows.


Are these Storm Front or Townhall articles?
